Words of Resistance is a monthly open mic event that runs out of the Dr. Chun Resource Library. In April, we’re partnering with Students for Barrier-Free Access (SBA) for an evening of expressions focused on the themes of ableism and disability. You can perform through song, chants, drums, poetry, spoken word, slam poetry, monologue, dramatic re-enactment, comedy, personal narrative, ritual, make-up, costume, multimedia such as video, a combination of these elements, or perform somebody else’s work. First timers welcome. Join us on April 28th and share your perspectives, share your experiences, share your stories! People do not have to personally identify with disability to perform but can share their experiences around it.

This event is FREE, and ALL are welcome to attend or perform.

To perform, sign up in advance or just show up for the open mic! To sign up in advance, call (416) 978-8201.

Vegetarian & vegan refreshments will be provided.
